Danny Ainge explains somewhat disappointing offseason, says goal is to 'hang banners'

While speaking to the media yesterday, Danny Ainge discussed his mild displeasure with the way this summer turned out for the Celtics (via WEEI's Ben Rohrbach):There were things that we wanted to do that we weren't able to do. There were some things that were tempting that we didn't do, that I'm very glad we didn't do. I like that we were able to get some things...

Kevin Love would come to Boston, and Danny Ainge has under sold the draft again

The Kevin Love story has been nice, and I honestly hope the Celtics can actually get this deal done. The Celtics landed the 6th pick, and that's good enough to trade to the Wolves. Ainge had this to say about the pick. CSNNE"Like I said from the beginning of the year, I think that the draft, there's not a franchise player in the draft, but I do think that there's...

Danny Ainge continues to downplay upcoming draft, what's his plan?

I don't know if Danny Ainge is playing a game of poker with the other GM's across the NBA. Ainge seems to always have an angle, and his love of the upcoming draft is in the friend zone. He's not overly warm about the upcoming draft, and honestly I don't want the Celtics to bank on drafting players as the only way to improve. Ainge has a star on his team that he needs...
